Single pin bow sight


Recommended Posts

Im thinking about buying a single pin. What are some of the disadvantages of them? I like how i can adjust very easily, i just wonder how easy is it to mark all of the different ranges on the back and how accurate are they?

Very accurate and easy to use. Real nice to always be able to put the pin where you want to hit rather than trying to split the pins.

Disadvantage? I can't get to my adjustments very easy with the bow quiver attached. As a result, I do not use if for hunting, though I know several people who do and seem to like them. They usually leave the pin set at 20 yards and leave it.

I agree with Don on this one. I shot an optimizer for a few years which has the adjustment on it. I marked anywhere from 20-60 yards. I would say set it for 20 yards and just figure out how much to compinsate if you are going to hunt with it. Otherwise you will run into a time where you don't have time to adjust it.

Thats what I have always thought about them. How can you tell what yardage a deer, or whatever, is going to be at from the time you first see it to the time you shoot. Seems to me like alot of unneeded movement in a stand. I, myself, would rather aim high or low on a stationary pin rather than try moving the pin with an animal in the kill zone.

Here is the solution. Buy an adjustable 3 pin sight. You're bottom pin is 40 yards. Mark out 50, 60, etc. from there and use the 40 pin for the longer ranges. Before they started selling these I bought 2 sights so i could make one. Now I have a 20, 30, and a 40 pin, but if I need to go long for a follow up shot or take a 70 yard poke on day 4 of a 5 day caribou hunt, I can adjust the sight and take the shot. Generally, the longer the shot the more time you have to range and adjust. It's the best of both world's, I will never go back to single pin.

I totally agree with Dave- I also shoot a 3 pin adjustable sight. I have always felt that this sight gives me the best of both worlds too.

For me a one pin was a great idea.... I am now going back to a multi pin as soon as the cash flow is there.

I missed two deer this year, both got on me in heavy cover and I never had a chance to adjust the sight.

On the other hand for target shooting I would say the one pin is the only way to go.

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/

      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/

      The best solution in this situation is to create the software yourself, and then turn to testers who will check everything. Although, if you manage to develop software, then you will have the strength to test it yourself
